Big East Player of the Year

Pat White. QB West Virginia
Unfortunately, White's 2007 season will likely be remembered for what he didn't do rather than the great performances that got the team to a Big East championship and the Fiesta Bowl. Banged up against South Florida, he wasn't able to be on the field late in the big early loss, and while he gutted it out against Pitt, his poor decisions and lack of big plays throughout helped keep the Mountaineers from the national title. The good needs to outweigh the bad. His brilliant late touchdown run beat Louisville, he led the way to the win over Cincinnati, the blowout over Connecticut, and again (it has to be repeated), the Big East title.

Defensive Player of the Year - Scott McKillop, LB Pitt
South Florida pass rushing superstar George Selvie certainly deserves to be named the Defensive Player of the Year, but McKillop was too special throughout the year as a tackler and playmaker behind the line for the not-that-bad Panther defense. Selvie only came up with one sack over the final four games, while McKillop came up with 30 solo tackles alone over the final three games. He was more consistent throughout the year.
